Teaching Position

Dr. Eric Kindahl has asked if there might be a post-doc interested in teaching an introductory Environmental Problems (ENSP 101) course this coming semester. I suppose others would be considered, too, besides post-docs. There has been need for the present instructor to "pull out for other commitments". The person who has taught the course for many years has graciously offered to make his PowerPoint presentations available to serve as a base for someone else to work from. Please contact Eric as soon as possible, if interested. His contact information is:
